Giacomo Puccini’s Birthplace Museum
Giacomo Puccini’s Birthplace Museum was established in 1973 and is situated in the house where Giacomo Puccini, the last of a family of musicians that dominated the musical scene in Lucca, was born. In this house, situated at Corte San Lorenzo, Giacomo Puccini was born on the 22nd December 1858. Raised by his mother, he spent his childhood and early youth here before moving to Milan in order to continue his studies. However, he remembered the house where he was born all his life and wrote in his will that it should remain property of the family. The house where he was born is certainly the first one visitors should see. A visit of the place where Giacomo grew up will help you to become familiar and learn more about this great figure of classical music.
September 13th 2011 the museum will reopen to the public after years of restorations. There will be events and celebrations, we will post the program as soon as we get it!
